Philips Bodygroom 7100 BG2040 / TT2040 – What You Need to Know
Men searching for an all-in-one grooming solution have found what they are looking for with the Philips Bodygroom Series 7100 BG2040 / TT2040. It is an ideal grooming tool for people of all ages, especially men who may be reaching that age where less hair is growing where it is wanted (on your head) and more is growing in places where it is not wanted (ears, back, etc). The popularity of the all-in-one grooming tool has soared in the past few years. Men are more self-conscious when faced with the prospect of putting on a swimsuit and hitting the beach. Here are a few things you need to know about this product before taking the plunge and making a purchase.
This Philips body groomer BG2040 is part of the Philips Norelco Series 7100. It can be found under the model number BG2040 or TT2040.
The Evolution of Grooming Tools for Men
Styles for men, as well as women, have changed drastically over the past century. Commercial shavers for men have been available for over a century, and it is interesting how the products have changed over the years. The first safety razors were made available to the public at the start of the 20th Century, and they allowed men to groom themselves, saving money, rather than visiting the local barber. By World War II, a shaving kit was part of every soldier’s backpack. Now, many men spend as much, or more, money than women on grooming products. However, with the advent of an all-in-one groomer men have the choice of buying a single all round product rather than multiple tools.
What Can an All-in-one Groomer Do For Me?
Top of the line all-in-one groomers can do a number of grooming jobs for you – and do them in an efficient and effective manner. The Philips Bodygroom BG2040 / TT2040 has a 3D pivoting head that allows it to closely follow the contour of your body for an ultra-close shave that cannot be had with a conventional electric razor. This body groomer also has a high performance trimmer with rounded blades that prevents scratching and pinching of your skin and can reach a number of “hard to reach” places.
The Philips Norelco is water-resistant so it can be used in the shower, and has a number of length settings so you can trim to your ideal length. It is cordless and therefore easy to use, and can run for up to 50 minutes at a time between charges. It is ergonomically built and has self-sharpening blades that never need any maintenance or lubrication.
What Do Users of the BG2040 Have to Say About It?
One of the best things about internet shopping is not the convenience of shopping from the comfort of your own home, but having the ability to research a product and see what others have to say about it. If you are shopping for an all-in-one groomer, you have a number of reviews located at Amazon.com. A quick search will find the Philips BG2040 has a large number of reviews the majority of them being the highest or 5-star ratings.
Users of the product who may have been skeptical before they purchased the product were pleased when trimming their beards, or anywhere that needed trimming below the neck. Many users also praised the five length settings, making it easy to either shave off all offending hair or to tidy things up nicely. The ability to use it in the shower also went over well with the vast majority of users. Many men also reported it is easy and safe to use around the most sensitive of body parts and the ergonomic handles ensures there is no chance of it slipping and accidently cutting something it should not.
Concerns About the Product You Should Be Aware Of
There were a handful of negative reviews of the product, with some users reporting it was not as effective as they would have liked or that it sometimes scratched their skin. Others complained about the quality of the product and noted that it failed after a short period of use. However, with the 2 year warranty this should be less of a concern.
The Bottom Line
For men who are looking for a quality, below the neck, all-in-one groomer, the Philips Bodygroom BG2040 / TT2040 is a solid choice. It is made by a manufacturer in good standing and is a must-have product for anyone who cares about how they look at the beach or by the poolside for those summer cookouts (on your top of the range gas grill) and parties. It is safe, easy to use, and convenient, a groomer that will not slow down your morning routine.
